AerospaceNorplex-Micarta’s thermoset composites are used in a variety of applications across many industries. Power Generation, Oil & Gas and Medical Devices are three industries that rely on insulating properties (thermal and electrical) and mechanical strength due to load bearing support criteria.

But there are many other properties demanded of thermoset composites including violent storm or ballistic protection, survival at absolute zero or in excess of 200 °C, low coefficients of friction or resistance to corrosive chemicals. These are required in applications found throughout the Construction, Aerospace, Heavy Industrial and Electronics industries.

Transportation, Power Transmission & Distribution and Electrical Devices round out the primary industries we serve. There are however, many other applications for thermoset composites.

For example corrugated die cutting backer board which relies on structural and low wear characteristics; or, due to exceptional acoustical properties, thermoset composites are used in high end speaker enclosures.
